Janet Jackson Is Coming to Phoenix

Janet Jackson has announced a few new stops on her 2017 State of the World tour. And lucky for Phoenix, Talking Stick Resort Arena is one of them.

The megawatt star will perform at the downtown Phoenix venue on Thursday, September 21. This 56-city tour is a continuation of her Unbreakable tour, which kicked off in the fall of 2015 in support of that album and included a stop at Phoenix's Comerica Theatre.

Jackson took some time off from her decades-spanning, Grammy-, Emmy-, and Golden Globe-winning career in 2016, when she announced to fans that she was pregnant. The singer, dancer, and actress had a baby boy in January 2017.

And by September, she'll be back on the road.

Her shows will include hits, new tracks, and of course, unparalleled dancing. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 5, through Ticketmaster and range in price from $34.75 to $120.25.
